  • The Silence of the Witness

    A shout-out to David Richards and the crew who today begin shooting on my two-part Silent Witness story for series 16. It’ll air next year. I was told, “Don’t be afraid to make it your own,” and I’ve taken them at their word. It can be tricky, making a contribution to an established and long-running […]

  • Saturday Event

    On Saturday I’m giving a talk-with-clips about my TV career at the Lass O’Gowrie on Charles Street in Manchester, and as the day gets closer I’m growing convinced that no one is going to turn up. If you’ve an events diary or similar feature and might be interested in giving it a mention, feel free […]

  • The Forgotten

    ABC have scheduled the two unshown episodes of The Forgotten for back-to-back broadcast on the evening of Saturday, July 3rd. They’re called Designer Jane and Living Doe. I was off the show and in development on another project when the news of cancellation came through, but I saw how the episode order was rejigged so […]

  • Patient John

    This kind of explains itself… every couple of weeks the Writers’ Guild e-bulletin compiles a list called What Members Are Getting Up To and every time I get up to something, I forget to tell anyone until it’s too late. The Forgotten Season 1 Episode 11 Patient John – Press Release A MAN’S MONEY-MAKING WAY […]

  • What I Learned in 2009

    It’s been in my mind to write a long post along the lines of “what I learned in 2009”, but until I can set some time aside to think-through and process the whole experience of relocating from one country’s industry to work in another, it’ll have to wait. It would be simplistic to say that […]

  • All Change

    Fun and games here. I’ve seen the director’s cut of my new episode and feel good reason to be happy. Danny Cannon stopped by the office this morning to say nice things about it. It’s set to air in January; last I heard was the 12th, but that can change. It’s been part of my […]

  • A DVD Competition and a Trailer

    Over at the Are You Screening blog, reviewer Marc Eastman writes about the Eleventh Hour DVDs and offers the chance for readers in the US and Canada to win a set simply by adding to the comments section. “Starring Rufus Sewell, on the short list of most underrated actors, as one of the world’s leading […]

  • On the Lot

    Well, now it’s official. According to my 0-1 visa I’m an Alien of Extraordinary Talent and Ability. Yeah, I know, I know. Even my bank manager thought it was hilarious. Apparently there’s also a category of Alien Crew Member in Transit. Sometimes they go on the run and we aliens of extraordinary ability have to […]

  • The UK Writer in US TV (2)

    They don’t get rid of me that easily. I’ve now joined ABC’s The Forgotten as co-executive producer, working as part of the team to bring creator Mark Friedman’s vision to the screen in the fall schedule. “The Forgotten Network” is a group of amateur detectives united in their quest to give names to unnamed victims, […]

  • My Year

    Well, every other blogger seems to be doing it… but I’ll keep mine short because, frankly, it’s been one of those years where you can’t run through the best of it without the risk of sounding like a total arse. Let’s just say I’ve had a lot to be grateful for. But to put that […]
